If you are in your 30s to 40s, we have not-so-great news about your skin. In this decade, skin cells turn over at a much slower rate compared to someone in their teens. Dead skin cells are essentially useless debris on the surface of the skin that diffuses light and makes skin look dull. Here are 3 proven ways to resolve this.
Slough dead skin cells away by exfoliating regularly. Experts say exfoliating at night is better than during the day because it removes makeup and dirt that has accumulated, ensuring your skincare products penetrate properly. For more gentle exoliation, try a glycolic acid exfoliator such as Sleep Mode rather than abrasive face scrubs.
2. TRY A THULIUM LASER TREATMENT
A thulium laser operates at the 1927nm wavelength that targets the upper part of the dermis, scrubbing unwanted pigmentation and sun damage. A true “fractional” treatment that produces thousands of microscopic columns in the skin, this method of treating dull skin promotes the creation of new, healthier, brighter-looking skin and removing damaged ones.
3. BOOST INTERNAL HYDRATION
We don’t really mean pumping your stomach full of water with this, that would be really boring because that’s what everyone already knows. We mean boosting your skin’s own internal moisturizing mechanisms. Hyaluronic acid molecules are present in our skin naturally and in case you didn’t already know, this is our skin’s chief molecule of water. As we get older, the levels of hyaluronic acid in our skin drop, and our skin loses some of its youthful bounce. Replenishing hyaluronic acid into the skin is thus the key to healthier-looking skin. Babydrop fillers contain bio-compatible and bio-degradable hyaluronic acid molecules that can be injected superficially into the skin, plumping up the skin from within, reversing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and even minimizing pores. These are normally delivered via microinjections and last for approximately 6 months.
